First gold with ice.

Went beach hunting Monday. Found this little 3.4g 10k (Love story) ring with small diamond. I believe this ring was on the move. It's a lot like a parachute and it had been lost for awhile. Started finding lighter aluminum (can slaw) and bottle caps. I said to myself this is not good. Because normally you want to find the items with more density. This just proves you never know. I thought it was another piece of aluminum. Light gold is a keeper in my book. Hope everyone finds something nice, good luck.

Great find Up! To pick up gold on a random aluminum signal is a great stroke of luck! Yes And I know how you feel about that aluminum s'crap'. I was thinking that in some of the heavily used parks I would just grid out 10x10 foot areas and dig all the gold signals. Then if that area didn't 'pan' out, move to the next ten x ten and do it again. So I figured that in an 80 acre park, with being able to do 4 squares in a four hour shift, it would take me approximately 796 years. Considering seasonal weather shut downs. I started two months ago. Wish me luck! Chuckle

Congratulations Updownup ! That's a beauty and not to light 3.4 grams is a good haul for just thinking it was aluminum foil can slaw. 10kt can be a bit tricky - but a cool find, WTG!

I  understand that most modern diamonds are etched with a microscopic serial number. Maybe you can find its owner.

   That is an interesting theory , if I'm still around I'll try and check back in 796 years to see how you did! Tongue

I've been away from the forum for a couple of days so it was extra nice to get back on and see Updown with diamonds and gold! Way to go. Every time I see a beach find posted here it makes me wish I were closer to the coast. Good snag amongst all that trash Updown.
